It was a great jobs report and Wall Street is happy but...and you knew there was one coming. China and the United States...it's official we are in a trade war. Meanwhile what might this mean for the economy moving forward and who pays the price? Want some neo-Nazi and white nationalist gear? Amazon has a deal for you. Those stories and a neat piece about two waitresses who donate a days tips to a charity each month. And we'll get with Parker Reed and Jeff Pitts from Cityview with Stuff to DO in the Metro this week into next. Click ahead for the business news headlines
We often record our broadcast interviews from Grounds for Celebration in Windsor Heights. We love the atmosphere of a live setting. This week when we were in for a segment waitress Judy Babb asked me about being on the broadcast and asked what it was we covered. When I said it was about business she said, "Darn, we were hoping you might say something about our charity work". We were interested. Meet Judy who, with fellow employee Holly McIlroy, pick a day each month (July 16th this month) and donate 100% of their tips to a charity. This month it is Unbreakabull Bullies of Urbandale.
Since we were last with you our lifestyle contributor Jeff Pitts from Cityview Magazine has become a Daddy! That's how Parker Reed and I open this segment of the Business News Hour Fun Friday Edition. Inside it is music, music, music with 80/35, some sports with the Iowa Barnstormers and music in Windsor Heights and much more. Click through and have some Friday Fun!
